    I've applied to a few tasks and positions here. Only to waste my time (and the recruiter's time) because they've not put up a budget and they want to pay like $10/hr. Please make budget fields mandatory and allow selection of hourly, per task, yearly, etc. The poster could also be allowed to say they're looking for quotes, but this is often a good indication that they have no budget and aren't willing to pay a fair wage.

    Thanks!

    Hey Naphier,

    Sorry for that - We are definitely adding budget to the task post for an upcoming release.

    I look for quotes, but thats because (1) I have no idea what's a going rate and (2) people from different countries have vastly different pay requirements.

    I've found that often people from less wealthy countries try to get a higher rate but then quickly lower it by over 50%, while people from wealthier countries will accept a lower rate, but complain if they can't complete the task very quickly, as in they misjudged how long it would take.
